How to get cheap holidays?

How get cheap holidays?
   That's my first question every time my husband tells me we're going on holiday. I'm frugal but  not stingy,if we have a chance to travel and go out in our comfort zone and get cheap holidays we're happy to do it.Lately,we had been fortunate to get  cheap holidays. More  holidays is coming as we are approaching the end of the year. As of now, I'm looking a  family vacation of 5 people on Thanksgiving holidays.

"Early Birds Catches the worm:"
    Early birds catches the worm; I could relate this sayings to my booking experiences.When you know your going to go on holiday, early booking saves you an extra bucks and gives you peace of mind  and it is a guarantee you'll going to go on HOLIDAY.Another reason for early booking is plenty of time to save money for extra excursions,restaurant or plenty of time to plan your holiday.

Expect the unexpected:
   Expect the unexpected, when you book a holiday, remember the  last minute deal is either you're lucky or unlucky-what I mean you got a good deal or no deal and most of it are fully booked depend how busy it is. Last minute deal is good if you have another option,but if you set your vacation sometime turns out the worst vacation or headache. I, remember our last vacation turns out a nightmare since all of  the resorts are fully booked and we had to drove an hour away from the ocean just to get a good accommodation.Playing by air is not a good idea if you have a baby.After, our experienced, we have been trying the last minute deal on online and go from then.Last minute deal mean no selection or limited and I don't like to be in the situation "no choice".If we plan our vacation we plan at least 5 months and if it is outside USA we plan 1 year prior our vacation date .

Keep an eye open:
   Keep an eye  open for any cheap holidays/good deals saves you an extra bucks and you can do something especial during your vacation.Mostly, travel agency you can expect to get a great cheap holidays and less stress.

In my opinion, if you want to travel and get cheap holidays keep your eye open for any promotions and  options, I remember "Don't count your chickens (before they're hatched)" hehhehe. Planning ahead of time is always important.If you want to travel don't be cheap, be frugal and  find a cheap holidays,although travel is not cheap.

  5. True! Dito, best in wait ako ng promos sa mga airline company.. tas umiiwas ako sa mga kilalang lugar pag peak season, mahalya fuentes kasi, pag off peak na lang.. San ang rampa sa Thanksgiving? :D

  7. Planning ahead will surely save you big bucks, when you buy plane tickets too close on your departure date, malamang you will get the most expensive fare.

  8. Real good tips here from a traveler like you, Mhie. I remembered my first ever travel out of the country was booked a year ahead. It pays off to have the booking way ahead of the travel. You can save a really hefty sum by doing so. Thank you for the lovely share. Very helpful tips.

  10. great tips for everyone since most people now loves to travel because of those cheap online buying site and budget airlines. but you are so lucky if you can plan your trip few months ahead, in our family we usually can't---its either a month or just weeks before although we have bucket list and stuff like that, just can't get ticket ahead because of hubby's work.:( anyway, enjoy your coming holiday...be safe! :)

  11. I have been an early bird and a late comer and both spectrum yielded good results in terms of savings. However, I still prefer planning way in advance as I get better deals on the property I prefer.
